Lynn Woods / The Best Park on the North Shore

Great 3-4 Hour Expert level Mountain Bike Ride over very rugged terrain. You and your bike will be challenged like never before.  Make sure you ride with someone, and make sure you have a GPS Route like the one at the link below, or you will be hopelessly lost.  Even worse, you will never find all the fun stuff to ride.


Great 4-5 hour Hike over very rugged terrain. Amazing views and 1000's of unique geological rock formations. Around every corner is just WOW for what you will see.  Even if you bring your best Camera, you will not capture what you see with your eyes.


The same trails either on a Mountain Bike, or a Technical Hike, will just knock your socks off. This is a park you can visit for over 20 years and still find something new every time. You will never get tired of this park, and a routine ride is something that never happens here.  

People come to this park to Bleed, and Bikes come to this park to DIE!

Friends of Lynn Woods

www.FLW.org

 

From the FOLW Web-Page:


Our Purpose 

The Friends of Lynn Woods have formed to ensure the perpetual  existence of the Lynn Woods Reservation as outlined by the Indentured  Trust of December of 1881.


Our aim is to protect the Woods from development and exploitation,  and maintain the Woods as a natural and unspoiled forest preserve. We  will organize and enlist volunteers to undertake projects within the  Woods that will enhance but not alter the natural and primeval qualities  of the forest.

We will strive to make Lynn Woods a prominent focal point of the  City of Lynn. We will educate adults and children alike to the  environmental and historical values of Lynn Woods.


The Friends of Lynn Woods will be the means for people to become reacquainted with the Lynn Woods Reservation. 


Lynn Woods Reservation is the second largest municipal park in  the greater Boston area. This 2,200 acre forest reserve consists of  ponds, wetlands, streams, deciduous/evergreen forest and rocky ledge.  The ponds provide the drinking water for the residents of Lynn and  surrounding communities. Wildlife abounds in the forest. Well over 100  species of birds inhabit or Lynn Woods Logoseasonally  frequent the woods. A large rodent population supports such predators  as hawks, owls and red tail fox. More than an aquifer, more than a  wildlife preserve, more than a wilderness experience, Lynn Woods is a  rare and unique adventure.


Lynn Woods awaits your exploration and enjoyment. You will come to  love and appreciate the woods as did the early settlers and citizens who  wisely preserved it for all generations.  For more information on events in Lynn Woods, call the Rangers' program  information line at 781-477-7094

I had to add this one too, it is a lot of fun to watch, and the riding is fantastic.  Also taken in Lynn Woods, this is a great group ride with lots of great video shots.  The Intro-Drive up Rt 1 is kinda-funny...
